Reducing Myself Monday

Today I weight.....137.5!

So down 1.5 lbs since 2 weeks ago, and down 6.5 lbs since I started 'Reducing Myself Monday' back in May.

Hus and I have been tracking our meals based on the 'old' weight watchers points.  It took some getting used to at first, but we're getting the hang of it.  I love that there are no totally forbidden foods, so I was able to eat some dark chocolate, a friend's home-baked chocolate chip cookies, and drink some wine last week.  And the 35 weekly points are a lifesaver.  I have this week's reserved for Thursday night.  I've organized a 30 year anniversary party for our union local and have ordered a chocolate cake with a custard centre for it! 

Hus has also seen results.  He's lost 12 lbs since New Years.  Part of it has to do with energy expended at work - shovelling the massive amount of snow we've been getting, but he is also very stringent in counting points.

You are doing so great I wish I could get with it. I have started to cut back so lets see how that goes
